Golden Beach Community Church was organized in May, 1980, as a summer ministry under the direction of the Lake Ozarks Parish with the assistance of Linda Reed, Director of North Shore Ministry, Missionary United Methodist Community Center.
The Rev. Larry Brown was hired as pastor. In the autumn, worship continued in the Center. Miss Reed and the Rev. Brown prepared a presentation with 35mm slides to take to various denominations to assist in paying the Rev. Brown on a part time basis.
We received a promise of funds from the United Methodist Church, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the Presbyterian Church USA.
Wednesday evening Bible study was started and the group met in homes. Children and adult classes were held on Sunday mornings before church. Vacation Bible School was held for a week each summer for the children. Services were conducted at Green Cathedral, an outdoor place of worship, at Lakeside end of W-12. For 13 years worship services were held each Sunday from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
On March 28, 1982, a Covenant was prepared and signed by all who came forward to become members. A committee was formed to draft the Bylaws and a Constitution. The congregation was certified as a non-profit corporation with a board of directors which planned and prepared a budget for approval by the congregation.
In 1983 the church purchased 2.5 acres of land located across the street from the Community Center and a doublewide building was purchased and placed on the lot. In 1990 the present structure was erected. A fellowship hall was added in 1997-1998.
GBCC has seen its building and numbers grow since its early days but still maintains its roots in being a community church of individuals seeking after God.
